dc.description.abstractpresents a study to evaluate the effects of psychoeducational interventions using Information and communication technology (ICT) as a means of educating and supporting people with schizophrenia or related psychosis. Cochrane Schizophrenia Group Trials Register was searched, inspected references of identified studies for further trials, and contacted authors of trials for additional information. It included 6 trials with a total of 1063 participants. No significant differences in the primary outcomes between psychoeducational interventions using ICT and standard care was found. In conclusion using ICT to deliver psychoeducational interventions has no clear effects compared with standard care, other methods of delivery and outcomes, and studies were few and underpowered. ICT remains a promising method of delivering psychoeducation; the equivocal findings of this review should not postpone high-quality research in this area.
